JEM Engineering Blood Drive | American Red Cross
September 12 – October 13, 2017

Please join us for our Blood Drive on Friday, October 13, 2017.

JEM Engineering is also excited to, once again, partner with the American Red Cross to launch the second of what we hope will be many blood drives. We’ll be working together to give back to the community in a truly life changing way since each donation we collect can save up to three lives.

We will be sending out more information in the weeks to come. If you would like to participate, or if you have any inquiries please contact us.

There are many ways you can help, but most importantly we hope you come out to donate.

*Although we greatly appreciate every person’s interest, we need at least 200 participants in order to make this a successful event! Please feel free to extend this invitation to others!

Why donate through JEM? Make your donations go twice as far!

Every gift you make is significant in our disaster relief efforts. We want to double your gifts so that our efforts will move twice as fast! JEM will match donations you make by 100%.
